exhaust leak

I've notice that my truck has seemed like it has a lot less power lately and the mpg has gone down. I got looking into the problem and found this.



Found that that was cause by the rear driver's side manifold bolt's head popped off.

My question is since i will probably have to take the manifold off to get the bolt out should i replace the donut gasket? Also I am guessing that I should use some sort of anti seize on the bolts?

And from what I read on here, there was originally no manifold gasket. So should i even worry about putting one on if the manifold surface is flat?

Thanks!

Re: exhaust leak

I was puting the manifolds back on and one of the bolts broke the head popped right off ,had to remove the manifold and dig up another damn bolt. I would slather on the anti-seize I use it on the uppipe donuts too . If Ithink I might have to take it apart it is getting anti-seize or even if not.

Re: exhaust leak

Nope, no gasket there. They are at the top of the up pipe.
